How to Keep your Dog Safe and Happy During Halloween

Halloween is fast approaching! The excitement of the event is in the air and everyone is rushing to get their costumes ready and put out decorations, but there is usually one important thing everyone forgets to do. Have you thought about your dog? Halloween for them can be a scary and dangerous time of year. Many decorations and treats are dangerous to dogs. Don’t worry! If you follow these easy steps your dog will enjoy Halloween as much as you do!

Treats: Candy and chocolate can make dogs ill. A way to make sure your dog doesn’t get into your candy to satisfy their sweet tooth is to make them some of their own treats. Keep your candy out of their reach too.

Costumes: All dogs are different. Some enjoy or don’t mind wearing clothes, others hate it. If your dog is resisting you when you’re trying to put them in a costume, don’t put it on. You want to make sure your dog is as comfortable as they can be!

Decorations: It’s always fun to make your house look spooky this time of year, although dogs can get hurt because of decorations that are in the way. Make sure you put your cobwebs and other decorations out of reach!

Trick or Treaters: Trick or treaters are fun to pass out candy to, but can sometime scare your dog. If your dog is wild or aggressive, it would be best if you put them in a room while you hand out candy. The same thing applies if your dog gets scared when the doorbell rings.

I hope these tips help you and your dog have the best Halloween!
